I'm half way through one myself.  I am using the bottom of a 3-liter that I got at Dollar Tree.  A hole punch works really good.  But using the painters tape is a great idea.  I used a piece of paper that I used some double stick tape.  Painters tape would be much easier. I used an 1/8" hole punch because the regular hole punch hole was too big for my taste.  I had to use a C hook to do the first row than went to a larger hook.
Here's my project:

Yours is turning out really nice!  I'd love to see when you finish.  Smiley

Here's my finished project. I added a strap so I can carry it with me on the road.

I'm on my fourth one now.  So far, the cotton yarn tends to stand up better than softer yarns.

YAY!!  I am so glad that you shared this!!  I was just looking at one of these that cost $25 and was kind of ugly... I am sooo glad that I didn't buy it.  I'm going to make my own! 

Yippee!!  Thanks Again! Grin Grin

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I am new to Craftster an just found this.  Thank you for including the pattern.  I was wondering what to do with all of the empty containers my husband has been collecting! Grin
